055 - Talking With Children About Your Divorce.
Christina McGhee, MSW is an internationally recognized divorce parenting expert, speaker and author.
Throughout her career she has educated both parents and professionals on how to keep kids in the center, not the middle, when parents part. Christina believes divorce doesn't have to equal devastation for families. While it is undeniably hard, with the right kind of information and support she thinks parents can be a child's absolute best resource when families change.
In her book, PARENTING APART: How separated and divorced parents can raise happy and secure kids, Christina offers parents practical strategies for dealing with the “real-life” every day challenges of coparenting. Because she loves being in the moment with parents, Christina continues to maintain an active coaching practice that allows her to work with Moms and Dads all over the world. She feels incredibly honored to stand beside parents as they tackle tough problems and rebuild their lives.
Christina has also recently launched a new online program, Coparenting with Purpose, that provides parents with a more interactive platform for gaining information and support.
Over the years, she has been featured on television, radio, podcasts and in print around the US and abroad. A few places you may have seen her are TODAY Parents, the BBC, The Times and Parents Magazine.
Married for over twenty-five years, Christina and her husband live outside of Houston, Texas. As a bonus mom and mom of four, she has acquired extensive on-the-job training as a chauffeur, negotiator, short-order cook, scheduler extraordinaire and finder of all things lost.
